Re: Car Show Season

Small world...

Ask him to please check with his Parts Manager or another old time employee if the dealership might have any Merkur parts collecting dust.

My favorite local parts manager [since retired] from local dealership would find OEM parts in some of those "once-upon-a-time Merkur" dealerships.

Have you used an infrared thermometer to read the temps at various locations?

Request for Merkur emblem

The "membership" link to the club received a request for the Merkur emblem that is on the front of a Scorpio. Yes, it could be spam, but in the event it's real, it would be kind of someone to send him one. If anyone sends him one, please post on this forum, so this unfortunate soul isn't swamped wit...

The white Merkur is not Jack's. For photos go to MagentaRed's post in 2010 Carlisle archives.

"Capri"? Did you catch a typo? Jack didn't tell me about a Capri. What do you know about Jack & Capri?

"The 1961 Mercedes 300SL roadster parked next to me is worth about half a million bucks. It is not a replica, it's the real deal. 30 year restoration was just completed.

Re: Marine/Aviation Grade Wire Termination

Brad,

Excellent info!

How many Merkurs are suffering from inadequate electrical wiring repairs, rather than ng components? Too many people blame the component rather than first identifying proper grounding and sufficient voltage to the component.
